    Hey, I know capt crunch mentioned he had a source...

    I'm gonna buy my lift on monday, and I'm trying to find somebody who's got phone numbers and shops that they feel has decent prices on BDS lifts...

    Thanks,

    You've got the power of your dollar buying you 1.55 Canadian dollars so why not try YJ Enterprises in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada? That's where I'm getting my 6" BDS front & rear springs & Henrik (owner) is a great guy. Has prices that blew the competition away!!

    Hey solo... FYI I'm getting my BDS lift from Ken's 4x4 in Ramsey MN... their phone number is 1-800-421-1556 and they can ship the items to you. Their website is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.kens4x4inc.com>http://www.kens4x4inc.com</A> What is really nice for me is that I can pick it up w/ no shipping and just have to drive about an hour north to get it. My 6" lift w/ r blocks (for now), SSV shocks, steering arm, sway bar drop kit, and the misc dudads was like $640, if went w/ a cheaper Trailmaster SS shock it would of been about 560 or so. But they know their stuff and have a sweet blazer themselves.

    I'll definately give them a call. I've seen higher standard web site, and they had better prices then predator 4x4 in Colorado Springs... That is the shop that BDS gave me because it's closest to my location...

    I might even give the Canada shop a call. Definately will call all of the places I can find ###'s for.

    Ken's was the best price I found and local so that was great. BDS didn't give me their name... I actually came across it one day cruising the web and I remember they sponsered some stuff a while ago so I decided to check out the site... low and behold I found BDS [​IMG]. The short shipping quotes I have gotten are about $100... Not sure if there is a extra or international charge from canada or whatever, but I have heard some really good things about YJ Enterprises so they would probably definetly be worth a call.

    Sorry

    You can get it from the site as well but YJ Enterprise's phone number is (613) 747-8557 (he needs to get a 1-800 #!!). My four 6" lift springs without bushings are $699.20 which is $136.80 each for the fronts & $212.80 each for the rears. I got mine without bushings because I'm going to get greaseable ones from OffRoad Design with some other parts. The bushings would cost another $60.
    These are Canadian dollars and right now, the US dollar is worth approx. $1.55 Canadian so you could get the 4 springs with bushings from Henrik for $490 US. (plus tax plus shipping). Shipping for me for the springs & 4 shocks over 1850 miles away (in Newfoundland) is only $120 ($77 US) for the 4 springs & 4 RS9000 shocks.

    Hope this helps

    WOW! [​IMG] That is a score man! I wonder if there are any fees or taxes that need to be paid by it crossing the border. I'll have to give heim a call for my rear springs!

    wow, I'm gonna have to try that place... captn crunches place gave me a quote for $758.00 for all 4 springs, front and rear box kit with a steering arm and BDS shocks also.

    I talked to one of the owners at BDS (get this he answered the phone... really nice guy), and hey said their shocks are tuned to their suspension... meaning leaf spring vs. coil etc.

    I'll have to call yj on monday and place an order w/ one of them, but hey the price I got is not bad...
